|Saturday, May 05, 2012|
Minsk, Belarus - In preparation for the International Day of Families, UPF-Belarus initiated a number of projects on May 5 to strengthen “Relationships among the generations.” Volunteers helped veterans with housework and listened to informative stories about their life experience during World War II.
Belarus is a nation with a rich musical tradition. With volunteer effort, a series of concerts on the theme “Veterans are always young in their minds” were organized. In addition, participants in the activities assisted musical groups from different regions of Belarus on May 7 and 8 in preparation for the Festival of Wartime Songs.
More than a thousand musicians from all regions of Belarus have gathered each year for this veterans music festival on May 9 commemorating the victory over Fascism.
